Is a DA required to show all exculpatory evidence to a Grand Jury?

If yes, then what is the penalty for the DA?

    Your question implies that there is exculpatory evidence that Bragg has failed to present to the grand jury.  Since grand juries are held in secret, what evidence do you think he has that he hadn't presented and how do you know that?

    Cohen's former attorney testified and has shown emails and letters, he says he had given to DA Bragg.  
    This case against Trump is done. But if the DA was required to show this to the GJ then perhaps there is a case against Bragg now. 
    Again, I do not know if it was required for the GJ portion of a case. I know it is for a criminal trial.

    Hello my:

    No..  The Grand Jury is NOT a trial..  It's strictly a tool of the prosecution.  The discovery phase of the trial is where exculpatory evidence is disclosed..

    Thank you. I knew it is required to be disclosed in discovery for an criminal trial. But also know Grand Juries are not the same.  
    I had heard some say Bragg could be in legal trouble over it.
